About me

My research is in the area of Open Education, in particular Open Eduational Resources and Open Educational Practices. I am also interested in the area of intercultural communication and the development of intercultural competence, especially in distance education and through web-based materials. I have lead a number of external projects, including OT12, an Open Translation MOOC funded by the HEA, and Performing Languages, a European project investigating the intersection between drama performance, language teaching and intercultural communication. I was also project director for LORO, an OER repository for language teaching materials, project lead by my colleague Anna Comas-Quinn.
